Arbitration

AFGE and TSA Agree To Historic Arbitration Agreement!

On July 12, 2012, AFGE and TSA reached a historic agreement on an independent dispute resolution process that will provide fairness and due process for TSA officers. This agreement is not part of the collective bargaining agreement but is equally important.

This agreement finally will give TSA officers real appeal rights – with cases heard by independent neutral arbitrators, or by Administrative Judges at the Merit System Protections Board, instead of just through the in-house appeal process. This new agreement on the Dispute Resolution process will go into effect November 1, with no ratification needed.

Effective November 1:

  • TSA employees will have the right to appeal adverse actions (i.e., removals, demotions, and suspensions of 15 days or more) to an independent third party: the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB).
  • AFGE will have the right to have disciplinary actions (i.e., letters of reprimand, suspensions of 14 days or less) heard by an neutral, independent third party in expedited arbitration.
  • Expedited arbitration before an outside neutral is also available if management violates employment-related policies.
